Poppy Wright is a school bully and a character in the Cold War II series. She is also a former friend of E.I.N applicant Emma Irwin and a bully to her boyfriend Benjamin Simmons.

Later on in life, she becomes a member of the Syndicate and Company for the Sheltering of Crime figures and members in Latin America and Europe alongside twelve of her friends: Briana Carrington, Kadia Bonniwell, Annabel Gillingham, Cordelia Heseltine, Isla Sherwood, Jennfier Sedgwick, Kierra Norrington, Imogen Randel, Kathleen Reckford, Victoria Summerfield, Tiffany Whittaker and Grace Workman.


In her first appearance Poppy is an 18 year old girl of average height with brown hair and brown eyes. Also in her first appearance compared to Emma and Benjamin who wear more conventional clothing Poppy wears slightly more formal clothing that often indicates that she is like many English E.I.N agents and from a very formal family. In her first appearance she wears a pink T-Shirt, a yellow sweatshirt, blue jeggings and brown slip on shoes.


Poppy may be a very minor character in her first appearance but alongside Joonas Koskelo and the series' protagonist Helga Blankenburg is probably one of the most developed characters in the Cold War II series, largely due to later stories. She is known to be rather influential and charismatic maintaining her friendship with her cronies both in the Cold War II series and A Woman's World as well as having strong individual connections to the 97 Slavic women in the Alliance of Russia and East Europe which is far more prominent in her feature incarnation.

Because of the fact she is from a very wealthy family she looks down on those who are from a lower social background and wealth background than herself. Poppy also describes herself as a Southerner and proud of it as her friends are also in the same financial situation as she is.

Also, owing to the fact she is an only child Poppy can seem very arrogant and confrontational. Though she is a bright student Poppy's background means that she seems more relaxed than other students on her future but she says "Just because I am from a rich family it does not mean that I can be totally relaxed." and though she is from a rich family Poppy and her family prefer a more relaxed approach, thus many people who come across Poppy as being a rich girl mostly believe her lifestyle to be smoke and mirrors unless they meet her at her home and listen to how she really addresses other people. Her fellow bullies say also there is no denying that Poppy and her family are people who pride themselves of their wealth.

As well as being from a very formal family Wright is also described the same way as Veronica Ravenshaw is described: Completely single minded and has no regard for anyone in a lower status than her and a great, great misandrist, what's strange though is that whilst Poppy bullies Benjamin Simmons in her original appearance and Jesse Fairchild, Benjamin Greaves, Gabriel Eaton and Noah Kimberly in A Woman's World she is perfectly fine with men older than her and never questions the authority of her leaders in the Syndicate and Company for the Sheltering of Crime figures and members in Latin America and Europe.

But Wright is not without positive traits as she was shown to be a lot more compassionate than her right hand girl Briana Carrington particularly when she was in secondary school because although her gang were the ones responsible for giving hair removal treatment to Benjamin Simmons when they were still in secondary school she rubbed numbing cream on his body, performed the operation herself and then performed cryosurgery afterwards whilst Carrington would have performed the operation and left Benjamin alone as would any girl in her gang.

Some people may also be surprised when they meet Poppy face to face at her home as she is not normally rude or as arrogant as some rich people are. On the contrary she is very polite and sophisticated at times when she wants to be but she is someone who has a quick temper and can be quick to anger. She is just as polite as well as her enemies.

Family and personal life

In the Cold War II series Poppy and her family are one of the richest people in England, she is the only child of George Wright and his wife Myra. Her father is an officer in the army and her mother is a businesswoman, though she is a student in this series at Cambridge University she ultimately lives with her family in Milton Hall, Cambridgeshire until she joins the Syndicate.

Also, in her Cold War II series incarnation, Poppy is one of many people to live in a country house, these also include various senior officials of the European Intelligence Network and even some of her friends, one of them being Briana Carrington, her right hand girl.

In A Woman's World, though still wealthy Poppy is not as wealthy as her Cold War II series incarnation and whilst she studied in Cambridge in her original appearance her feature incarnation studies at Manchester.

The Cold War II series

Poppy first appears as a very minor role and is shown as being everything Emma isn't, whilst Emma is very close to Benjamin and very protective of him Poppy is very cruel to him and delights in bullying him and frequently joins in gangs who bully him and it is indicated that she is a leader of a girl gang that bullies Benjamin herself, later on in life she and her friends join the Syndicate and Company for the Sheltering of Crime Figures and Members in Latin America and Europe whilst Emma and Benjamin join the European Intelligence Network. Despite playing a very minor role at first she begins to appear more frequently later on in the series.

Agent to Prisoner

In the very first story Agent to Prisoner she appears after Emma and Benjamin have had an interview for joining the E.I.N and scolds Emma for being absent when they should have met. When Emma brings up what she would have done with Benjamin Poppy tells her that he should have been abandoned and proceeds to bully him until Emma tells her to back off which Poppy does but not before telling him that one way or another he'll wish that he'd never been born and his life would be made a living hell.

Ultimately her words come true many times the first occasion being that he and Emma are captured by the Scandinavian Alliance and the other being that Benjamin learns that the girls who used to bully him Poppy included have later joined the Syndicate and Company for the Sheltering of Crime Figures and Members in Latin America and Europe. Despite this though Poppy is not seen again for the rest of the first story.


Alongside her fellow school bullies and some members of the Syndicate and Company for the Sheltering of Crime figures and members in Latin America and Europe, 22 female British agents for the E.I.N and the 97 Slavic women involved in the Alliance of Russia and East Europe Poppy returns in a different form in the feature story A Woman's World as a minor role again and as a bully.

She also returns with four characters from the World War X series. Whilst she originally attended Cambridge University in the Cold War II series for feature incarnation attends Manchester University alongside her fellow bullies.

But Poppy not only returns with these characters but also two of her enemies Eva and Cordelia Knight who are part of the Ladies in Leather and appear in The Last Crime of Rebecca Harrington which is unrelated to A Woman's World.

A Woman's World:

See also: Poppy Wright (A Woman's World)

In the story Poppy has the same personality as she did before. Always hanging around with gangs of bullies and a cruel misandric bully, only this time she and her gang bully the four main protagonists of the story: Jesse Fairchild, Benjamin Greaves, Gabriel Eaton and Noah Kimberly.

This Poppy uses the same principle as her Cold War II series version does to Benjamin Simmons only this time this Poppy does not join a villainous organization and she also is not shown to be as high a status as her Cold War II series version.

Instead she is depicted as a gang leader compromised of the same people who bullied Benjamin Simmons in their original appearance, this time she has the four boys come to one of the gang's houses. There they are knocked unconscious by chloroform, zipped into sleep sacks and loaded onto four vans one for each boy and three except Workman to a van.

With their prisoners the convoy drives to Jackson's Warehouse where the boys are made to wait on the vans whilst Wright signs the four boys into slavery. Meanwhile the vans are directed inside and once inside the boys are unloaded into a new world as the bullies watch.

After this Wright nor her accomplices are seen again though it is revealed that Wright and her cronies were involved in the kidnapping of three other boys: Adam Hammerton, Oscar Baynton and Peter Slowley.

At least the four boys do not think they see Poppy or her bullies again because they are shown to have come through to the women's world where the 13 bullies take on the role of torturers with Poppy taking part herself. Poppy is later seen with Briana and Kadia putting Jesse Fairchild through BDSM and he is also the last boy who stays with them.
